forces a mind
to its knees
like a hostage.
But it never worked
that way for me.
See, I’m a multi-tasker,
which means
I get very little done a day
unless I sit for hours
(or at least until my butt hurts).

Laugh if you want.
I’m part of a trend –
procrastination nation.
Data is ammunition,
rampant, rabid tech
shooting into
an over-crowded head.

So stop a moment.
Just do it.
Pop the blue pill.
Let the vigilante in.


That accomplished nothing.
